Trudy primary furniture provides a flexible, interactive environment that encourages and inspires learning.
Over the years we have spoken to teachers about what they need and discovered there was a lack of storage options to suit the huge variety of equipment in a primary classroom. A classroom is a place where a child develops, grows and learns how to express thoughts and feelings. It is a place where a teacher encourages shared learning and where a child builds their confidence. We watched, listened, learned, and created Trudy primary. A complete, flexible, bright furniture solution for primary schools.
Manufactured by Claughton Furniture Ltd., Trudy now has hundreds of products in the range, including display boxes, shelving, art easels, storage solutions, and more.
Claughton Furniture Ltd. is an industry specialist in designing, manufacturing, and fitting educational and commercial furniture. Over the years we have spoken to teachers about what they need and discovered there was a lack of storage options to suit the huge variety of equipment in a classroom.
Unlike secondary schools, where pupils move from room to room for different subjects, primary school children stay in the same room for most of the day. The teachers stressed their need to be able to rearrange the room to suit the subject, whether it was working individually, in groups, or clearing everything away to make space for drama.

Each piece of furniture in the trudy primary range has been developed with quality, safety and practicality at its core. High quality finishes, rounded corners and durable materials mean that even when in a busy classroom environment, this furniture will still look good for years to come.
It's the attention to detail which sets us apart. From the methodical research process to the more than rigorous testing by our future users, nothing is left to chance. We are determined to bring you furniture which pushes the boundaries, not only of design but also of durability and value, to provide a complete solution to schools of all sizes.
We've paid attention to the little things, which can make a big difference especially to safety and children's well-being. All our furniture has rounded corners and edges to reduce the risk of impact injuries, and all units with doors feature our half-moon shaped, easy grip handle design so even children with the smallest hands can use them.
Many of our units have adjustable shelves, giving you flexibility, and a number feature our handy top well for additional tray storage and to prevent things falling off when you move the units around. For additional flexibility, many of our products are fitted with castors, which enable you to move and rearrange your classroom as easily and quickly as possible.
Some of our units are double sided, with a choice of end panel finishes including mirrors, whiteboard and chalkboard. Curved aluminium rails on our units add colour, strength and durability, while the shelves on our bookcases have specially created rails to prevent bowing.
The entire trudy primary range is available in our contemporary range of exciting colours, allowing you to create a fully coordinated furniture scheme to inspire young minds. By looking after the small things we know the big ones take care of themselves. But, just in case they don't, we've provided a five year warranty for your added peace of mind.
We only use timber supplied by companies accredited by the Programme for the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), meaning that all of our timber-based materials come from sustainable sources.
At its end of life, all our furniture can be recycled, incinerated, or composted.
Our manufacturing processes have been refined to lessen any impact on the environment including the use of optimising programmes to achieve the highest yield from our sheet materials. We have also partnered with Timberpak Ltd. which means all of our timber off-cuts can be re-processed into new sheets of MFC. Any excess and extracted dust can then be put in our own wood burning incinerator which we use to heat the factory.
Our commitment to the environment extends to recycling 95% of our factories waste materials, and opting for reusable and/or biodegradable packaging alternatives where possible.
You can be assured all Trudy primary products are not only manufactured to the highest quality standards, but also at minimum cost to the environment.
